Mubarak Speaks Four Days Late
Mubarak accused protesters of abusing freedoms
which he the feared oppressor had given citizens.
Mubarak refused to step down leave town gallantly
too late too late Mubarak promises to promote democracy.
Mubarak Mubarak should already long long be gone
the wounded the dead protesters cannot all be wrong.
What will Mubarak give protesters teargas rubber bullets?
Stones are speaking out in poverty need with empty wallets.
Contrast beloved King Abdullah II of Jordan ordered Jordan’s
police to hand out water and orange juice to thirsty protesters.
Which would you vote for? Which give a no confidence vote?
King Abdullah urged senators officials, to be in constant contact
with people in all provinces, to hear their grievances, to hear their
ambitions, their interests in frank dialogue. Wise King Abdullah.
